New Streets Are Coming for Barry Farm

The Barry Farm Development Team, Preservation of Affordable Housing Inc. (POAH) and A&R Development, along the DC Housing Authority (DCHA) held a meeting with Barry Farm residents on December 20, 2017 to discuss possible names for the five new streets proposed. The development team worked with a historian from the Anacostia Community Museum and offered a few names for discussion. Residents, in turn, suggested the streets be named in honor of former Resident Council officers. After a robust discussion, residents were asked to vote for their top choices. Presently, developers are confirming with the District Department of Transportation and the Office of the Surveyor whether or not the favored names are available for use.  Final street names will be announced at a future resident meeting.
